Supernauts blasts off, Molyneux claims F2P 'abuses and confuses' and AdColony snapped up for  $350 million

It’s been another hectic week in the world of mobile gaming. Barely have the PocketGamer.biz team recovered from another Pocket Gamer Connects conference and the industry throws us enough news to keep us more than honest.

Rather than complain about the lack of rest for our wicked team, we’ve instead spent the week busily beavering away at the biggest stories of the week. Arguably the biggest news was the arrival of Supernauts, Grand Cru’s heavily tipped free to play game, which many believe has the potential to be the next major mobile monetisation hit.

But that was far from all that happened. Opera splurged millions of dollars on video network AdColony and while Seriously, yet another Finnish gaming start up aiming to take the world by storm, managed to raise cash for their goals. There was job news aplenty with GameDuell, Fuse Powered and Tag Games hiring. And free to play was in the headlines again, with Peter Molyneux claiming it 'abuses and confuses' players.

So without further ado, here are all the highlights from the last week in PocketGamer.biz land for you to devour hungrily.
